“Came to a bar to have a nice beer, like any reasonable person would on a Friday. The waitress asked me to order through a QR code which would take my order only if I have a Gmail account. I left and found another bar because: I don’t want to have a beer through my Gmail. Jesus fucking Christ.” – Vjosa Musliu
Aren't you tired from writing your Rust programs in English? Would you like to try something different, exotic and funny? Do you like saying "merde" a lot?
Here's my contribution to solve this problem: Rouille, a French Rust programming language.
After 5 years of development, Persy 1.0 is out, checkout the relese post here http://persy.rs/posts/persy-1.0.html
I was there when Steve Jobs unveiled the original iPhone (ironically, I gave a talk on Flash there right after his keynote). I started making apps for iOS from day one, learned Swift in alpha and updated my code with every new version since. I’ve had multiple apps featured on the App Store…
If Apple goes ahead with its plans to have your devices violate your trust and work against your interests, I will not write another line of code for their platforms ever again.
how the pandemic is going right now
Gmail is blocking emails with links to Tutanota. Spread the word to help us stop this!
Tenacity is already attracting a bigger developer community than it seems Audacity ever had.
@Mayana If you care about my Rhapsode project, I highly encourage you to participate in Mozilla Common Voice! (See above toot)
Speech recognition is my single biggest weakness in localization (not that I'm unimpressed by Voice2JSON's efforts there), so lending all speech-to-text engines more training data will help Rhapsode work accross all languages!
Also yes: I'd love automated transcriptions in all our video players. Did you know PocketSphinx & Kaldi supports GStreamer?
Once there was a promising young technomancer who abandoned all of his principles and collected everyone's data. He told them it was safe with him, and in time they believed him.
Over time the technomancer realized he had amassed so much information that he became mightier than even the leaders of the world, but his greed and desire for wealth kept him from noticing.
He began to sell his influence to these leaders and got them hooked on his data.
They used it solve crimes, and they used it protect the endangered, and they used it to detect who would likely do crime, and they used it to keep the people divided, and they used it to topple one another's nations.
All the while making the no longer young technomancer even more powerful and wealthy.
The prophecy says that the Technomancer will try to destroy those who oppose him. But the agents of the wires will bring him to his knees by rebuilding what was lost.
I finally solved a mystery that I hadn't been able to figure out for years: why Tor Browser doesn't get the "Attention Required!" CAPTCHA page and vanilla Firefox does.
Turns out it's browser fingerprinting that determines whether you get that page. I just installed the Privacy Settings browser on Firefox. One of its settings is "websites.resistFingerprinting" which is set to True in Tor Browser and False in vanilla Firefox. Setting it to True avoids the CAPTCHA page on Cloudflare websites.
I actually hate how k8s is just "accepted" as the solution for container orchestration. Like it's not the only way but even in some providers' interface, they alias "Cluster" with it.
I really sometimes just hate how four companies can dictate what the world uses. And people go with it without thinking because it's a form of job security
Here's my favorite git feature that no one knows about:
You can reference commits using the commit message instead of the hash. The ":/" syntax accepts a regex that matches any part of the commit message, returning the youngest matching commit.
